i'm overview related brandon on behalf of mr. moedz i've known as a coworker for a number of years. i've served on the advisory broadway brfd for a number of years and moses came after that he was a sterile part of the board. i'm surprised the committee functions at a higher level. a lot of stance he does the official work that a lot of people don't see. because of the drunly of the office he taxes that responsibility and been a steering wheel person in the community. it's important the issues as
10:03 pm
anything and i think he is the person who can provide the kind of leadership that is important to this community i'm happy to a support him >> thank you very much come on up. good afternoon mr. chairman and supervisor breed and supervisor cowen. i'm carl williams i'm a resident of district 5. and i am the president of the san francisco african-american democratic club. i'm here to support the repoint in time of dr. moedz. i've known him for a you been unable of reinforces as a very conscience person someone deep low committed to a public process. and he has served with
10:04 pm
distinction on this commission so far and i believe he would serve very well to continue his work on that commission as previous speakers have indicated this is an important commission and dr. moses will bring contingent to the process of the commission as it goes forward with the complicated work of trying to make a reality the obamacare and other important pieces of legislation. thank you. >> thank you. any member of the public wish to speak on any item. you want to ask a question >> okay supervisor breed.
10:05 pm
>> you want to go forward? >> would this be part of public comment for you. >> seeing no other public comment public comment is closed. before you ask a question i want to ask someone to come up first of all, i want to commend you and the other commissioners to create such a diverse system in terms of neglectly. i want to see this is diverse. i'm curious in regards to immigrant percentage whooid wide just broad strokes it didn't have to be denied in broad strokes what's our immigrant population in san francisco >> our immigrant population in san francisco just made a
10:06 pm
presentation on this is 36 percent or one in every 3 receipts in the city. regardless of the breakdown the europe wan and ailing and aevenlg >> about 64 percent are from and 16 percent if mexican and 13 and a half percent from the uc and ireland and germany and other parts of europe and 1.6 percent are from african and nigeria and other parts of africa that he and then less than two tenths are from the
10:07 pm
occurring run. >> what are the russian. >> they fall a - supervisor breed you have a question? >> i'm happy to bring telling up but let me start by saying anyone can bring whoever you want this is a system that has existed for a long time. you were actually an interim in any office and they were to assist with information for the rules committee. and for any item that's brought before the rules committee the opportunity to speak during public comment is uterus so it's your prerogative >> one of the things i want to
10:08 pm
reiterate in meeting with a lot of those immigrant rights organizations there was a lettuce that you guys had earlier i was one of the first persons to meet with them. it's one of the thipgd i can bring to the committee is youthful energy. when i met with kathleen coal i'm sure she can reiterate this i had a meeting with phil. i don't want to inject hostility but people were on the committee are all great but this is like three or four weeks ago she already said no, i was a little bit >> who is she said, "no. >> i had a conversation with
10:09 pm
her, she said the people that on on the committee are great i do think they're great and i think you know i'm young and i'm smart i don't what i'm talking about. there's two who don't live in san francisco and i know they're here but - >> we do have one of them who's a native san franciscan who's been actively engaged and another person who is running an orchestrates. and let me be exemplar i came here prepared to hear from those candidates knowing you and your passion hoping to provide an
10:10 pm
opportunity for you on this particular commission i think you do an credible job i came here and i can probably speak for any colleagues, we come here looking for great candidates to serve the city and county of san francisco and what happens when wu you have all person regardless of a r0i7b9cy waiver i won't say i'm not familiar but i'm familiar with mel have a with her advocate and so we're in the situation where there's no reason to not support those candidates. i didn't come here with the mindset those people are going to get 30i7bd i wanted to
10:11 pm
looking the attention records i won't to talk about the status quo it's about having good quality people who have a track record of this kind work and the opportunities - i'm not going to speak for my colleagues i'm sitting here torn how to make n this happen but the opportunity will teaspoon to a happen from my prospective in terms of the people who are not necessarily on this body and not exempted in the same capacity as the people who are asking asking to be re30i7bd >> i was told weeks ago it's not a for gone go conclusion. i reached out to the caucus and
10:12 pm
justice cause and a mr. hernandez. i hope you guys consider me seriously i know the 6 candidates have great advocates for them staff members in particular but i hope, you know, take the things that i've brought in today. there was a feeling that the decision was already made it was a little bit a disappointing but the process is still open >> i want to reinforce with supervisor breed just said in under no circumstances hearings there's no foregone conclusion. for me, i do the same thing i like to listen and see what was submitted and see if candidates
10:13 pm
we try to get the best candidates in this particular case we've heard 7 candidates and one didn't show there's only 6 seats. it seems like the evidence will then show be a great commissioner. i tend to support the people who have been doing the work. especially for this commission the timing right now is so important to keep something stable with rights - going through the federal process right now and, you know, some possibility that something might actually happen we need attire commission to be one whole where they can continue to be an advocate in washington, d.c. we - i know that generally
10:14 pm
speaking in san francisco we think that every commission and everybody we have here has a lot of impact at the federal level but this is one commission where i feel strongly that it actually has some federal impact because of how organized we are. that's a final reason to disrupt that strong body we have at this point. in addition, what i'm hearing in about 6 months there would be some possibilities this could be some oakland maritime support servic services; is that correct >> supervisors there are 5 commission vacancies in
10:15 pm
june 2014 and those are some of the dmirgsz in that category are a little less active than the current group our talking to today and we'll welcome fresh fades. >> doesn't anybody want to make a motion. >> well i don't want to make a motion (laughter) but let me also i want to make a few comments. i came here definitely fully prepared without a doubt to support dr. moses because what i know about mrs. moedz anonymous to the immigrant but to san francisco. i only had an opportunity to meet with phil and i was very optimistic because i know how hard he worked and i i know
10:16 pm
about some of his ideas for this particular commission he will bring a missing voice. the gaps in this particular commission include the youth gap. he's not as young as i am - i'm kidding with that - he brings a prospective that seen always one of the gaps that is missing and i look at this commission and look at it how incredibly diverse s it is and how you have some really credible people. i came here concerned about the residency waiver and the
10:17 pm
attendance. i was definitely looking at mario he has incredible kre78d he credentials and below p blew me away with his presentation. it would be easier to appointed someone i know like phil who i actually had a had an to know he worked for me in my office he's hardworking and a great person and would do an incredible job but it's hard for me not to support the continuance of those candidates that are applying particularly with mel have a she wants one more term. and because of her harrod work and her work in the community
10:18 pm
the mathematics museum i i mean, the list going on in terms of advocacy. i feel compelled to make a motion to continue to personally work with phil to help to make sure that an opportunity that opens ♪ the future whether through the board or mayors heats definitely one that should be part of the commission many the future. i hope in the process of this develop some of the relationships with the members and continue to help at that particular time. no commission is completely one hundred periods of time full proof but i know this is an important time and we have some great people and an opportunity to add on some additional wonderful people but with all
10:19 pm
